Home Learning January 2021
Hello Oak Class, your adults are really missing having you in the classroom but thanks to the wonderful world of technology we are still able to see you everyday via 'Teams'. We are so incredibly proud of the way you have committed yourselves to your online learning and your adults are absolutely loving seeing your work via 'Teams' and 'Purple Mash' and providing you with feedback. It is essential that you continue to persevere with your online learning and keep checking our weekly Files on 'Teams' to see your activities for each day.
If you have any questions about our remote learning, you can contact Mrs Hatch via the private messaging option on Teams, email through Purple Mash or contact the school directly and an adult will be able to give you a phone call.
Keep safe and keep up the super work!
Mrs Hatch, Mrs Thomas, Mrs Doherty, Miss Kellett and Miss Kuzmich
Hi Oak Class! I’m really missing you all and loving the online work that you’re submitting, you’re doing brilliantly.
I’ve made a short video on the division by two numbers that we were looking at just before we locked down. Have a look and see if you can copy my working out. Enjoy, Mrs Hatch 👍🏼
If you are learning from Home, please use the link below to access Oak's latest Home Learning Pack. This is expected to be completed and brought back to school upon your re-entry. Keep looking at our website for updated Home Learning activities. If you don't have access to a printer at home we can arrange for a printed copy to be collected from Reception, or if your whole family are self-isolating we can arrange delivery.
Home Learning is essential and should be completed daily in order to continue to progress in your learning. Purple Mash, Times Tables Rockstars and Reading should also be completed every single day. Mrs Hatch is carefully monitoring these activities and is available if you would like any support.
If you have any further questions regarding your home learning, please email Mrs Hatch via Purple Mash or contact school directly.
As you know, we have unfortunately had to close Oak Class for the next 2 weeks. We'll miss you so much, and look forward to being back in school again soon. Lots of love, Mrs Hatch, Mrs Kuzmich and Mrs Whaley xxx
We have added lots of exciting tasks to Purple Mash, so please have a look and complete them over the next week. We will then add new tasks for the following week.
HOME LEARNING PACK
Also, here is the new Home Learning Pack, for you to complete over the next 2 weeks. If you don't have a printer, just use a pen and paper to complete the tasks, number them and give them little subheadings. try to complete a little each day, along with your Purple Mash set tasks, and remember to visit Times Tables Rockstars regularly to keep up your tables practice and to build up speed.
We are still here for you when school is closed!
Below will also find some really helpful Maths and Writing Tool Kits, which can be used to help you with your online learning.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon. Take care and stay safe, and as always, remember to KEEP THOSE BEDROOMS TIDY!
The Top Marks Addition and Subtraction tasks are brilliant and some of them have an extra spooky theme for Halloween! Based on the brilliant Maths you've done over the last couple of weeks, I would like you to have a go at some of them, challenge yourself and practise building up speed and accuracy in Addition and Subtraction.
Follow the link below for some spooky Halloween Spelling and Grammar exercises. Remember to challenge yourself as you build up speed and accuracy.
Most of you spent lots of time on Purple Mash over the Summer, handing in brilliant examples of Home Learning Tasks. I absolutely LOVE looking at the work that you hand in on here for me, and have set up some live tasks for you to complete for me over the next few days. These are based on some of the Maths skills and SpaG targets that we have worked on over the last couple of weeks. Enjoy! Your logins are the same as last year, but if you can't remember yours please email school and we'll do our best to send it to you.
As we already know, after Half Term we will be studying Ancient Egypt as part of our topic work. We will examine The River Nile in detail, finding out about its great importance to the people of Ancient Egypt and how it was extremely significant to them in lots of ways.
Please take part in the following online lesson from the superb Oak Academy Trust, to learn all about where The River Nile is situated, alongside some other important World rivers. Click the link below to access the lesson.
CREATIVE LEARNING TASKS
Below, are some lovely creative, arty ideas for you to try over half term. We'd love to see some of your creations, so take lots of photos and email them to us!
For all those budding Scientists among you, after half-term we will be delving into the mind-boggling world of 'Living Things and their Habitats!'
Take a look at the exciting activities on this link and have a go with people at home!
Why not take some pictures of you completing these activities and send them to use via Purple Mash?
We can't wait to see all of the fantastic things you've been up to whilst learning from home!
Reading at home
Reading is a fundamental skill and it is incredibly important to continue to read a wide variety of books at home. Whether you are learning from home or in school, it is important to read as much as possible to improve your reading stamina, develop your word knowledge and ultimately enjoy immersing yourself in the wonderful world of story telling.
On the website, there is now a dedicated folder to 'Reading'. It is under 'Parents' and then 'Reading'. This page explains about the Oxford Reading Scheme and gives yourself and your adults useful tips on how to support reading at home. It has some fantastic suggestions of questions to ask when reading at home and offers guidance for parents to feedback to teachers about their child's reading.
Wow! We have almost completed our first Half Term in Oak Class!
As a whole school, we have been looking at two books; The Rainbow Fish and Here We Are. These books explored the world that we live in and over our first half term we have been having many debates and discussions about them! We will shortly add some of our super art work and writing that we have been working on, linked to these beautiful books.
PE will be outdoors as much as possible, so we will have chance to practise our athletic skills and ball handling skills as much as possible before the colder weather sets in!
Reading Superstars are always checked weekly by our LSAs.
To become a Reading Superstar - you must read 3 times to yourself in school, 3 times at home and 3 times to an adult at home to reach the superstar goal! There are prizes for children that reach this target every week in a half-term and also termly so get reading!
Times Tables Rock Stars
The children love TT Rockstars! We are continuing our daily 'Times Tables Rock Stars' sessions. Remember, you can use your login at home to work on your skills and challenge staff and children, if you haven't logged in at home yet, try and have a go! We have been really impressed with many children from our class using this at home - we love the fact that you are challenging members of staff too!
